What to Do After a Rideshare Accident

Call 911

Contact the police to report the accident and obtain a police report. This report can be valuable in proving fault and damages in your case. Be sure to obtain a copy of the report for your records.

Seek Medical Attention

Your health and safety should be your top priority after a rideshare accident. If you or anyone else involved in the accident is injured, seek medical attention immediately. Even if you do not feel any pain or discomfort, it is still a good idea to be examined by a medical professional to ensure there are no underlying injuries.

Document the Accident Scene

After ensuring everyone is safe, document the accident scene as thoroughly as possible. Take pictures of vehicle damage, injuries sustained, and the surrounding area. Write down the names and contact information of any witnesses and the driver's information, including their name, license plate number, and insurance information.

Report to Rideshare Companies

Report the accident to the rideshare company as soon as you can. Uber and Lyft have specific protocols for reporting accidents, and failing to follow them could result in a denial of your claim. Contact the company through their app or website to report the accident and provide any relevant details.

Wear Your Seatbelt

Wearing your seatbelt is one of the easiest ways to stay safe during a rideshare trip. Make sure to buckle up before the car starts moving.
